SEPANG, 29 October 2016–Repsol MotoGP World Champion, Marc Marquez, together with Hiroshi Aoyama unveiled Repsol’s new series of Repsol Elite lubricants after the qualifying race at the Sepang International Circuit. The quality of these products has been improved to help extend the engine’s lifespan, exceed the most rigorous specifications and quality standards in the field, and comply with the strictest environmental regulations.
These new lubricants have been certified and recognized by the main automobile manufacturers, and they offer the best performance in terms of protection and efficiency. It is also possible to reduce consumption in new vehicles by more than 3% compared with previous formulation. They also contribute to the durability of the engine and the exhaust after-treatment systems, which leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions in the most advanced engines.
Repsol has increased the range of viscosities available in the Repsol Elite line, with the highest-quality additives and specific formulations for each manufacturer. The range includes synthetic products that meet all customers’ needs. The product was developed at the Repsol Technology Center following the most rigorous quality standards.
Márquez, who won his third MotoGP World Championship a few days ago, uses gasoline and lubricant formulated and produced by Repsol. Repsol has come out with new packaging design that indicates the types of engine oil, allowing the customer to instantly identify the difference in quality level that best suit their engine requirements.
This new line of lubricants will be blended at the UMW plant in Shah Alam and will be made available in the local market next year. “The partnership forged between UMW & Repsol brand has enable us to deliver the pinnacle of quality and excellence to our precious consumer,” said Megat Shahrul Azmir, President of UMW Manufacturing & Engineering Division.
